Dr. Alan Edmunds, Psychologist coming to the EECC Feb. 18, 2019
Submitted By Mark Holmes on Tuesday, February 5, 2019
Family Day - Feb 18th, 2019 

A Seminar Featuring Dr. Alan Edmunds will take place on Family Day, Monday Feb 18th, 2019. Alan is a Western University Professor and Sports Psychologist who will visit the East Elgin Community Complex in Aylmer for a two-hour presentation entitled "Doing It Right: How to Help Your Child Handle High-Pressure Sport". 

This seminar is targeted at parents of athletes involved in competitive sport. What kinds of pressure do these athletes face? How do they react to winning, or not making the team? How do they respond when injured? Can they emotionally get to the next level? Most importantly, how do Mom and Dad help them navigate these issues? This seminar was developed to provide parents with the best approach to helping their child handle high pressure sport.This presentation will run from 10am to 12pm.  Ticket prices will be as follows:

$65/person
$60/person if more than one parent/family member attending
$55/person for groups of 10 or more

Bill Reid suggests this is a fantastic rate as some of his research has found similar speaking engagements in the surrounding area to be at a cost of at least $100+ per person, while private sessions often range from $175 to $300/hr.  For this event, parents whose kids are of any age are encouraged to attend, but please note parents with kids 9-10 years and older would be the target audience.  For those who are purchasing tickets you can bring one athlete per ticket purchased to the event free of charge but it is recommended athletes who attend be around the 12+ age.

For tickets you can contact:
